Simple ingredients and a few minutes time is all you need to make these perfect, homemade pancakes.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups whole milk
3 tablespoons butter melted
Melt the butter in microwave for 30 seconds, set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
Stir milk and egg together.
Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.
Pour the butter and milk mixture into the well.
Use a wire whisk to stir everything together until just combined. It will be slightly thick and lumpy, but should be well incorporated.
Allow the batter to rest while heating a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to medium high heat.
Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
Cook each side for 3-6 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
